The Problem

Teenagers will be able to: explain why a nutritious diet is important. describe "Traits of Healthy People." explain how diet and health are related. name the needs of satisfied by eating. list factors that affect food choices. explain why you eat the foods you do.

Our Plan

Bring about an awareness in teenagers on why is food important. Give teens a better understanding of why do they eat. What affects teenagers food choices. By having teens create a "Why I Eat Diary" and what are the most common reasons teenagers eat the foods they do. Understand how the environment can affect food choices.
